    Hello Sosarian fellows !
    Its been some days that i have in mind to host sort of "large" High Seas event, NOT monsters one, but something different wich could be really fun . For that, all those lovely Governors can be a great part on this event. Let me please try to explain what i have in mind :

    ( EVERY town name is taken as an example )

    New Magincia will transfer some gold and precious to a better safe location, ley's say Jehlom, and this using High Seas ships. I wrote ships because the "Admiral ship", the one who has goodies AND THE TOWN GOVERNOR aboard should have also ships for its securety.
    But but....will this be so simple ? Of course NO !! Har! Har!
    By some spy work one ( or more ? ) town KNOW that the New Magincia Governor is sailing heading to Jehlom so...why to not try to assasinate the Governor, sink his ship and steal money and such ?

    Yes, basically i'm talking about two seperated teams...a good one ( Governor , guards etc ) and the Evil, Pirate, one.

    Ofcourse an event like this must be done in Felucca...and there's some hints that i've elaborated :

    First of all, I, Morgana of Moonglow, i will buy those required ships ( they must be all the same, same cannons etc etc ) this because if a ship get sink...it's lost, sort of, so for that i don't wanna see peoples who lost theyr own ship. Also i'll try to provide on cannons and ammunitions too.
    A ship is considered OK when it's crew is full and this shoul be : one Captain and one fighters for each cannon ( So a 7 cannon ships must have a 8 players crew )

    If a Governor will take part of the fun She/He will be the 9th passenger.

    There will be prizes for those who win. Ofcourse if the Magincia crew do the job (safety put money and goodies on Jehlom ) get a reward BUT if the Magincia crew get killed by one of those Pirate crew...the prize will be double !

    I'm working for something like : "good" ship team killed : 5 points. Add 5 more points if the crew has a Governor aboard ( and killed too..)

    "Evil" pirate crew : 3 points but add 5 if a Governors take part on the dark side !

    Once a team get killed NO REZKILL is allowed. The killed Crew just loose, that's all. No need to rezkill or play dirty..

    I will need two "top fair" players as Judges but i have those highly trusted persons already, so not a problem.

    EVERY combat IS allowed just in a fair mode. So Trowers, Melee, Ranged etc, everything is OK. You can also use conflagrating pots, explosion pots and so on. Hey, it's WAR afterall.

    Pets ? Sure, you can also use your companions ! ( So Tamers are OK )

    Just PLAY FAIR !

    I'm sure, it could be LOTS of fun to try to track, follow those ships ...and fought them for the Glory !

    Crews, starting and ending towns etc etc must be planned. But i'm looking for a first answer and see if it's worth to try to sort an event like this :)

    Oh yes, and even if Governors get the chance to co-operate in future...we should remember what happened on Sea ! :)

    Please let me know what you'll think..it can be the first event like that on Uo history...so why not us, Europa, be the first ? :D

    I can't imagine nobody is interested in this Morgana. We've had several EM events involving ships in the past. And those were very well received, until Emile crashed the shard a couple of times...

    Going through my notes I found some ideas for High Seas events Emile never got to use. Feel free to use any of it ;)

    The world has become increasingly dangerous. Fights can crop up at anytime and anywhere. Therefor a sizable navy, that can move swiftly and bring both warriors and powerful cannons to the fight, is very useful.
    Serpent's Hold has built two Britannia Class ships, and they need crews for both of them. The crew, of course, need to be trained. As part of the training they will compete against each other.

    Possible events
    • Capture pirates (the most in 1 hour?)
    • A race (boring for most of the crew)
    • Fight Scalis (hard!)
    • Protect a trader's ship.

    • Find a stranded ship/crew.
